She said exhibition

'She Said....a group exhibition celebrating the joy of text'... curated by Cate Halpin.  The show forms part of wisewords celebrating Women's History month.  The private view is on Thursday March 10th at The Outside World Gallery, 44 Redchurch Street, E2, the show runs until Sunday 13th.

I have finally finished my new piece 'I wish...' and the She Said exhibition is the perfect opportunity to showcase it.  

I have been working on this since last November, its good to finally get it finished!  Painted onto found wood, the piece is inspired by all kinds of vintage typography, from circus posters to Victorian flyers.  Its a heartfelt statement about all the things I want my art to be, and perhaps the impossibility of that!

Launch night at Debut Contemporary

The launch night for Debut Contemporary was PACKED!!!  With people queuing all the way down the street!  The show looked really good, there was an eclectic mix of work including painting, photography and sculpture, with each of the 40 or so artists exhibiting one piece each.  It was also really good to meet some of the other artists involved in the project.  The show is up for three months, with the works on rotation, meaning that there will be an opportunity to see a variety of pieces from each artist.

I managed to get a few pics but it was a bit too busy to get good ones of the work!  Luckily there were plenty of proper photographers there documenting everything, I will be posting more pics soon.

Thankyou so much to everyone who came down on Wednesday, if you couldn't make it to the opening, the show is open daily, 82, Westbourne Grove, London W25RT
